George, you can have my share.  It's being a frog-drowner out there
again today, and I'm about to rust into place permanently.  From
the looks of what's bouncing on top of the hot-tub cover, there's
a little hail in this storm, too.  You have to understand, PNW rains
are traditionally like a heavy mist... wipe off your shoulders and
you're dry 10 minutes after coming in.  This stuff is coming down in
buckets.  *AND* it's not supposed to rain more than a couple of
times between May and September here.  Mediterranean climate and
all that.

Gee, if I wanted to freeze all year 'round, I woulda moved someplace
really interesting, like Little America.
